    I was mostly talking about the fact, the armors could be upgraded and you don't had to change them after every level upgrade. The fact you don't have to change them at all, I don't like.

    There is nothing wrong with micro transaction. No one is forcing anyone to buy them. People need to stop saying it is a bad thing to have it.

    your missing the point.

    In this game and other ubisoft games the entire game itself is build around the helix store in order to trigger us to spend more.
    Thats the problem at hand.

    Microtransactions - Everything is wrong with them, you spend £90 on a game plus season pass then all the nice stuff gets added to a store that requires more money to be spent, and is usually better than what is available in game.

    I've always been on the "dont buy them" bandwagon, but its getting ridiculous now. The cost is mind boggling as well, the sooner it is deemed illegal the better. Then we can get back to games being finished, polished and ready to go from day 1. Not 3 months down the line, full of bugs but a store crammed to the hilt with updated goodies on a weekly basis.

    @LeoRaptor1979 people need to stop saying they are a bad thing to have? Well please help us out then WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT THEM? Whats good about disgustingly high priced mtx that rob from the game to bolster sales?Because I see nothing good for the consumer...only Ubisoft.Not only do we need to continue saying mtx are a bad thing to have but a lot more people should say it and practice NOT buying them.

    ppl should also stop buying collectors editions or ultimate editions, which in truth is just a standard version inbedded with MTXs yet most here did get those..

    get just the bare bones game next time.

    @Asgardian02 guilty! I bought the ultimate edition...but in our defense or maybe just mine, I thought it was going to at least be as good as Odyssey, but I won't rush to that judgement again!

    @leoraptor1979 I used to feel the same way, and still do to some extent. If the content doesn't give the player a distinct advantage and is purely cosmetic, then what's the harm?

    However, I struggle to find a way to view it that still isn't inherently anti-consumer. Even if you consider that microtransactions like this help keep the price of AAA games down (and to be fair, they're due for a price hike anyway) then you still have to assume that the "whales" are basically subsidizing the game for the rest of us.

    I think this is gonna be pretty subjective for most people, regarding where the particular line is drawn. But to me, I think it's particularly frustrating because such a large amount of content is now behind a paywall compared to what's even in the base game- it feels a little less supplemental when the ratios are that terribly off. Like, I wouldn't mind if there were some wacky armor sets that were paid DLC, but at this point it would cost a small fortune to get everything- and while that personally isn't a huge problem for me, I've been around these forums long enough to see people who are really bothered by the inability to feasibly have the "complete" experience of a game, and who's to blame them?

    I am also guilty of buying the ultimate edition, because of the promises Ubisoft made about the helix store (Which they broke within a month after release) and I was expecting a finished game. Next time will wait a year and buy it for 10 euro or after reading about even more iaps, not at all.

    havent you read any games news past odyssey launch? Even though Odyssey is better then Valhalla is had many problems as well.

    I mean Anthem was dead in the water upon arrival. Wolcen same story and more games.
    After Anthem i i told myself to never pre-order. Then i got Wolcen upon release which was a huge mistake.

    So basically dont pre-order and never purchase a game right after release again.

    @leoraptor1979 Normally I would maybe agree with you kinda. If it is a single player game and its mostly cosmetics sure no one is forcing you to buy them, BUT there is a huge BUT why its bad in Valhalla.

    It is because in every other Ubisoft games sure there are in game stores offering gear/weapons other cosmetics for money, BUT other ubisoft games usually has big customization and gear variety options already in their base games, so you really dont need to buy them if you dont want to since you have a lot of options already in the game. But in Valhalla there is almost no options, no gear variety no customization nothing and if you want at least some new gear you need to pay for it omg that is such a deceitfull and disgusting behaviour towards players.

    With Valhalla the Ubi greed is at the max level it ever was, and each new armor set in the store for more money is a huge spit into the faces of all players, who just want some variety AND BASIC RPG ELEMENTS EVERY OPEN WORLD RPG SHOULD HAVE!

    If this game doesnt go through big loot system rework I am not playing it again and if the next AC game is even remotely similar to Valhalla I will never touch it also, its sad really cause I love AC games and Origins and Odyssey were great, but I hate in which direction the series went with Valhalla and really hope new AC will go back to Odyssey, Origins style.

    People need to stop saying that the game needs to be polished when released. Sorry to bust all your bubbles but a game will never be polished and finished upon release. If they waited until the game was polished and finished before releasing it then games would never be released. There is not a single game released that was polished and finished when released.

    There is nothing wrong with micro transactions, people need to stop acting like cry baby's about it.

    @LeoRaptor1979 what I "need" I'll decide for myself, what other people "need" they can decide for themselves, but since you bring it up what I don't need is more over priced microtransactions where aspects of the game suffer to bolster those sales and yet leave the game in the sorry condition it's in...I definitely don't NEED that! Sorry to burst your bubble but that's usually what beta testing is for, your reasoning is pretty lame and serves only to make excuses for a company thats already shown us they don't give a damn one way or the other.

    There is another good post about this issue https://www.reddit.com/r/assassinscreed/comments/lbsmi8/there_are_now_9_armor_sets_in_the/

    And the video elaborating on that



    Really hope it will get a lot of attention and something will happen about this. Best case will of course be a big rework of loot system in Valhalla and introducing much more armors and weapons into the base game, but thats probably not happening. So at least if it gets a lot of attention next AC could be great again.

    @leoraptor1979 I realize that patches will always improve a game's experience.

    I also realize that any studio that released a game during the COVID-19 pandemic accomplished a Herculean feat, and obviously we need to consider things with a little leeway this year.

    And I also realize that no matter how much troubleshooting is done, a game will always have bugs on release.

    But I still really don't think it's too much to ask to expect something to be launched in a relative state of polish.

    Can't say more than whats already been said.

    I really liked Valhalla, 200+ hours into it. Even put up with all the bugs and disconnects.
    Paid $100 for a game and to see how much stuff goes into the microtransactions store is really disappointing.
    Again the way Ubisoft treats its customers, SUCKS.

    I dont understand your reasoning. You expect ppl to pay top dollar only to beta test a game and then you ask them to shut up??
    Not sure what world you live in
